food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.
the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die
The idea that someone should cleanse your water and supply it to you for free, grow your food and pick it for free, and build your houses for free implies slavery.
Steve Gelberg is a San Francisco Bay Area photographer. From the artists statement: For me, the pleasure of photography is in the pleasure of seeing, the experience of opening a more intuitive, patient, contemplative eye to the world. Its about flowing with the strange, synergistic relationship between quiet receptivity and probing curiosity. It is about appreciating the suchness of things, as well as intuiting their symbolic resonances. Photography is, for me, the cultivation of a deeper seeing, and through deeper seeing, heightened awareness and emotion. It is about being surprised and delighted by the ten thousand things (as the Taoists say) of the world, and cultivating a sense of wonder. It is both a spiritual discipline and a hedonistic surrender to the senses. Its about paying homage to the perceived object itself, and to the process of perception itself—allowing oneself to luxuriate in the visual pleasures of form, shape, line, texture, light and shadow.
